Plaxton Panther sets the pace as Coracle moves into top gear

Published: 17 Sep 2019

Coracle Coaches, a thriving business focusing on school contracts, holidays, excursions and tours, has added a 12.8m Plaxton Panther to its fleet of luxury vehicles.

The new 53-seat executive coach is powered by an 8-litre engine with I-Shift transmission and has a luxury finish, including three-point safety belts, air conditioning throughout, washroom, USB charging points, CCTV, reversing cameras and alloy wheels.

Based in Carmarthen, Coracle Coaches has established itself as one of the leading operators in South West Wales, running tours to top attractions across the UK and Ireland, as well as holidays to Disneyland Paris and wider afield in Continental Europe.

All of these activities, plus concerts and sporting events staged at The Millennium Stadium and in London, are enhanced by an ingenious passenger pick-up strategy that Coracle deploys across Wales, stretching from Carmarthen, Llanelli, Neath and Swansea to Port Talbot, Bridgend, Cardiff and Newport. In addition, these key locations are augmented by an inspired home pick-up service, all of which is designed to make life easier for the customer.

Ken Duxberry, Owner-Director of the business commented: "Our aim is to provide best-in-class service for our customers. That means making things as simple as possible, from the moment they leave home to the minute they arrive back.

"A critical part of that experience is providing top of the range, high performance vehicles. In that respect the Plaxton Panther fits the bill perfectly. It’s ideal for the diverse range of activities we cover, and, of course, it is fully ULEZ compliant, which is now a 'must have' when operating in and around London."
